    • Porsche aims to double overall sales by 2015

      Well, so much for VW holding Porsche back to protect Audi. The Detroit Bureau reports Porsche is intent on growing as large as possible as fast as possible setting a very loft goal of doubling global sales by 2015. To do that in just 4 years would be absolutely incredible but Porsche is the most profitable automaker on the planet. The numbers look possible as they want to go from about 97,000 vehicles to 200,000+. The Cajun entry level SUV and the entry level roadster are the models Porsche is betting on that will push the sales numbers to their goal.

The Cayman and Boxster are about to get a whole lot better. A Cajun SUV will be based on already successful platforms available (Q5) and the roadster will be shared across 3 brands. That is all they are doing, they aren't going FWD or providing electric bull$#@! nobody asked for. Oh, and they aren't saturating their line up with BS that nobody asked for like the 550GT.

        They also are doing all of this while maintaining the GT and turbo variants and catering to their enthusiasts instead of selling THEM out like BMW has. Personally, Porsche is doing what BMW should have and besting BMW at their own game. That is, providing Ultimate Driving Machines.
        I really hope all of what you just said isnt going to the $#@!ter because of some high up executive that wants to 'change the plan' to boost sales by making everything a hybrid.

        Nope, everything that I said is the current plan. Porsche isn't making some electric garbage to cater to hippies and inflate it's MPG standards. It makes efficient/sporty naturally aspirated AND turbo cars for the enthusiast, something BMW can't seem to any longer.

        I liked the fact that P-cars were not as commonplace.
        I hope the quality doesn't suffer and regret that they're moving more "down market" with some of these new cars.
        Owning a Porsche use to mean something, I fear it will lose some of that.

        I also agree with Sticky about the P-car leading in their categories,but I think the Panamera is debatable though.

        Repped for the truth. Only I hate to say that Porsche never made anything good past the late 90s. Everything went commonplace, and more people bought the car because of the status quo associated with it. Porsche sold an astoundingly high number of automatics to cater to that market. To me a Porsche should have, and should not be an auto. Maybe PPK or whatever its called, but I always grew up with the fact Porsche was supposed to be a manual. That was part of the 'there is no substitute' mentality.

        Sure the new GT3s, Cup, Supercup and RSRs are nice, but they are increasingly easy to drive. Whatever happened to the days of old where you were battling a 700hp monster that had the boost delivery curve of a wall?

        Sorry but I guess Im kinda stuck in the old age..

        It's definitely debateable but the Panamera offered a PDK before anyone else as well as AWD and RWD options. Pretty nice...
